How to Reverse Damage and Age Progression
This blog is about the different treatments that can reverse the effects of UV and sun damage as well as the signs of aging that show on your skin.
Every year, as the weather warms up, we all get excited to spend some more time outside in the sunshine. With springtime comes opportunities to hike, picnic, swim, garden, and so much more — but through it all, we need to remember to take care of our skin.
UV rays are a silent killer. They can wreak havoc on your skin cells and speed up the aging process exponentially, but most of the time, we hardly even notice this is happening. That’s why it’s so important to wear sunscreen every day, whether the sun is out or not. UV rays can penetrate cloud cover so your skin is always vulnerable.
Luckily, there are ways to erase UV damage, and slow or even reverse the effects of aging on your skin. With a combination of HALO Laser Resurfacing and Visia Skin Imaging computer complexion analysis, your providers here at Radiance can figure out where the damage has occurred on your face and treat it accordingly.
Visia detects the damage.
Using UV technology, Visia creates thorough and detailed digital images of your skin. It analyzes the data to tell you what your skin needs. It can tell you whether you have sun damage, where wrinkles are forming, which pores are enlarged, and can detect other damage such as spots, wrinkles, texture, porphyrins, UV spots, red areas, and brown spots.
Using this digital image as a touchstone, you and your provider can better determine a treatment plan to heal your skin.
HALO treats the damage.
The HALO Hybrid Fractional Laser treats the effects of long-term sun exposure, the aging process, and environmental pollutants on the skin of your face, neck, and decollete. These effects include wrinkles, laxity, scars, discoloration, and more.
Most laser resurfacing treatments require several sessions to generate optimal results, but HALO creates visible improvements to the skin in just one treatment session. This is because HALO is the first hybrid fractional laser ever developed, combining non-ablative wavelengths to coagulate tissue and ablative wavelengths to vaporize tissue.
After a HALO Laser Resurfacing treatment, there is minimal downtime, and you can even wear makeup the day after your initial treatment!
A three-step process.
The first step is acknowledging that you want to treat the damage, both visible and invisible, that sunlight and the aging process have caused to your skin.
The second step is figuring out what kind and where the damage has occurred with a detailed Visia skin image, and the third step is treating that damage with HALO Laser Resurfacing.
In the end, you’ll be able to confidently enjoy spending time outside in the sun without worrying how it’s going to impact your appearance.
